​​T​he State of Iowa Youth Advisory Council (SIYAC), is complied of 24 youth​ members across Iowa who advise the Governor's office and Legislative Assembly​ on youth issues. SIYAC members meet quarterly, where one meeting each year​ is reserved for the legislative session where members can speak directly to​ legislators and attend committee meetings to explain their positions on youth​ issues. The Iowa Youth Congress welcomes up to 100 Iowa High School students​ who focus and advocate for three main youth issues of their choice. The booth​ in the Rotunda would provide legislator ad the public with information on​ SIYAC and the issues they are currently working on. In the past DHR has requested three tables to set up information on these​ ​youth programs.
